Mer Doon breaks the cycle of dependency for impoverished young women in Armenia by providing education, job training, a family environment, instilling leadership skills and teaching self-sufficiency.
We are HOME for those who have none.
Established in 2005, Mer Doon began to answer the serious need in Armenia for orphans who have outgrown their orphanage, and for other seriously disadvantaged young adults. Mer Doon opened its first home in Etchmiadzin, Armenia in October 2006. In our home we offer a solid education and a loving and compassionate family environment. For many of these orphans and disadvantaged young adults, Mer Doon is the first family they have ever known.
Our First Home
We are currently providing a caring environment for ten young women, each furthering their education, and pursuing a useful skill or vocation. In addition, these girls receive a religious education, learn French, Russian and English languages in-house, and are trained by staff in personal and social skills.
We Give Back
Our family also gives back to the community. Everyone is encouraged to visit regional orphanages, many return to where they came from, to show children that adoption is not the only hope for their future.
Mer Doon's Board of Directors are bi-coastal, and consists of leaders of the Armenian-American Community who are...
Committed to bringing a brighter future to disadvantaged young adults in Armenia.
In addition to fund-raising, The Board provides oversight and direction to the staff and program directors in Armenia, and is currently working on long-range planning for the future growth of the program.
